We just did our dining room with the RL suede paint. It was so difficult to work with. We ended up covering the wall with 4 coats of paint. The x brushing patterns did not work at all. They left streak marks all over the place. We ended up following the advice of Joe D'Angelo (previous e-mail) and use just rollers to roll the paint on. It was much better. Most of the streak marks were gone. But you really don't get that suede look too. It ended up looking like sand textured wall. Which is ok by us. Better than the alternative "bad paint job" look.
